THINK OF BUILDING YOUR FUTURE

TOGETHER WE CAN CREATE THE FRAMEWORK

THE BUILD PROGRAMME

GETTING THE FUNDAMENTALS WORKING FOR YOU

An initial consultation will assemble facts about your company, through a series of interviews, questionnaires and company documents to provide a review of your core purpose and vision, including defining the values that underpin your strategy.


The outcome will be an assessment that will identify those areas that need;

  • refreshing
  • reaffirming
  • recreating – specifically the core purpose which is central to the decision-making process leading to strategy, vision, goals.

This (3 Rs) will lead to recommendations regarding your:

  • core purpose
  • vision, and values that flow from the core purpose.

You will be given a clear picture, based on concrete detail and information and identify areas for development. Such high-quality data will be critical in forming judgements and providing strategic leadership.

LEVERAGING YOUR STRATEGY – OPENING UP NEW REALITIES

The real value of BUILD is that it provides a strategic leadership framework which leads to structured sense making of both the company environment and the wider, ever-changing and ever faster environment you operate in. Internally it is about diffusing the core purpose and getting your people to engage. Implementing the new frameworks is key here.


Whilst we can provide this as a service, we recognise that you may well have the skills of implementation within your company, so this is a decision for you to consider.


If you decide to implement yourself, we do encourage you to use BDO as a mentor/facilitator whereby we can share our experience and co-create models of your business which reflect the actual situation you find yourself in rather than some generic model.


Within BDO this modelling is considered the source of taking informed and realistic judgements.


We can help you to go from these models to, for example, practical KPIs that are understood and accepted by your people.


Alternatively, we can work with you in this implementation phase which frees you to think about using BUILD as a strategising tool to help you systematically analyse the situation, look at things from different angles and come up with new ideas.

LINKING 'NOW' WITH THE FUTURE

What we do now can only be understood in relation to where we will want to go in the future.


BUILD will help you to avoid the 'success trap', to scan the environment in a systematic way in order to better predict where the future lies.This initially starts with governance and linking the ideas of different individuals, committees and staff groups.


Knowledge is discussed and transmitted through the firm’s culture and specifically through storytelling, which enables people to discuss and exchange ideas in a meaningful way. This is how BUILD worked at BDO and we have developed expertise in the use of language and deploying authentic stories.


Future scenarios are stories and BUILD can help you integrate the multiple stories into a form with which you can strategise – ultimately this is something your company has to develop, and we can provide continuing support so that you can make your future decisions with the BDO team who will now have an intimate knowledge of your organisation and a commitment to help you look at things from different perspectives and, as a member of our client family to enable you to succeed.
